As regular readers will be aware, the Fethiye Times team are big fans of full moon swimming in the summer.This summer we shall get a real treat with two full moons this month – a blue moon.
A night swim is a great way to cool down during the hot summer before retiring for the evening.
And the experience is even better when there is a ful moon to light our way.
There are two full moons this month.
The first is on Thursday 2 August and the second on Friday 31 August.
To get two full moons in a month is fairly rare as most of the time we get 12 full moons a year – one every month. In fact they occur on average every 2 and half years.
The second is called a ‘blue moon’. Hence the saying ‘once in a blue moon’.
So why not head for a beach or a pool and swim under two full moons this August?
And you can also sing the song if you feel so inclined………All together now
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
